For more than forty years I have used lines from favorite poets in my psychotherapeutic practice as clout to help positive change happen in my clients...and myself.
A poetic spark developed in me during my years in Manhattan with poet and therapist Dr. Jean Balderston. Many years later a poetry group in New York State's Sulliivan County, with Will Conway, Tracey Ranze and Tina Hazarian, helped strengthen poetic voice. Katherine, a daughter no longer among us, somewhere in her lifetime became, and continues to be, my Muse. Now retired in New Orleans I am happy to say I am a member of the Maple Leaf Bar Poetry Group with Nancy Harris.
Thank you to Michael Czarnecki and the Springfed Series for this coming-out party for my unconscious, not yet with a name of its own.
